    Girls have a nice, round, globular crest with slightly or fully rounded feathers, depending on the color of the bird. Males will have larger waddles and a larger comb (but both should be small or hidden anyway) Males should also have a very noticeable "rooster" like tail with sickle feathers and long saddle feathers at the base. Also, males have a huge, draping, messy looking crest.

    The best thing to help with is telling what color it is. If it is indeed fully grown, it should be VERY easy to spot boy vs girl.

    Pullet. I don't think she's full grown though. Not yet at least.
